Make My Monday is In the Garden. The flowers on my card are stamps by Paperartsy. I also used a Crafter's Companion stamp for the background script and a mini stencil by Creative expressions for the circles.
I started off by stamping the flowers then painted over them with masking fluid. I left the masking fluid to dry overnight - a first for me, I think - I HATE having to leave things to dry.
My next step was to create the background. I started off by blending distress inks then splashed it with water. I also added some Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders. This time I didn't leave it to dry - I blasted it with a heat gun.
Next I stamped the script in Distress Ink and then added the circles using my stencil and some Distress Oxide ink. I also added some Distress Oxide around the edges.
I peeled off the masking fluid and then watercoloured the flowers with Distress Inks. I think I need a bit more practice at this technique because I don't think I managed to get enough depth on the flower petals. Maybe I'll stick with my pencils! I am however reasonably pleased with the end result.
I hope you can join us this week at Make My Monday.
